Have you heard about the cop who brought truckloads of donated food to the home of an impoverished grandmother busted for stealing five eggs?
Driven first by explosive social media sharing, the national news media then picked up the story of Helen Johnson of Tarrant, Alabama with seeming reluctance. After all, it sure flies in the face of an entire year of cop-bashing based on events in Ferguson and New York City. Can they afford to let viewers know that not all police are brutal killers?
A moved American public then began to flood the Alabama town with donations for the Johnsons with not just food but cash contributions to an account set up on their behalf. Read all »
Let’s make one thing clear up front: the only potentially stupid thing Rick Perry has done is agree to be interviewed by anyone employed at NBC.
Beyond that, left-wing criticism that the outgoing Texas governor didn’t answer one of its moronic questions fast enough is absurd. Should “are you smart enough to be president?” be dignified with a response? Perry skated around it smoothly, almost as if he’d expected it. Read all »
Is there a conspiracy to keep Barbie dolls out of reach for African American girls?
CNBC found a white version selling for two dollars less at Walmart than a black Barbie and DEMANDED ANSWERS. Perhaps even more discriminatory, at Toys’R’Us, the darker-skinned doll was four dollars cheaper than her pale counterpart!
Where is all of this leading? To an Al Sharpton-led demonstration and corporate shakedown? Only NBC knows for sure. Read all »
Things are quickly turning ugly for “progressive” media darling Lena Dunham, but if her friends have their way, you’ll never know a thing about it.
Back in October when the issue first surfaced, we wondered how the “Girls” star’s story of a “mustachioed campus Republican” rapist named “Barry” would hold up under scrutiny. In the weeks after the release of her book, where her rape allegations were first made, skeptics began to dig around for clues.
In the meantime, a real guy named Barry (and campus Republican) who attended Oberlin College at the same time as Dunham set up a legal fund to defend himself from wherever this might lead. Read all »
Are you sufficiently panicked yet over the Great Bourbon shortage of 2014? It’s been all over the news, especially after a feature story in the Wall Street Journal.
Good thing we have our priorities straight around here. The world be damned!
According to WSJ, fears of this coming End of Days for the Kentucky-made delicacy have many hoarding dozens or even hundreds of bottles in their cellars, awaiting the day when the last publicly-available drop has been consumed: Read all »
We’d never given much thought to Chris Rock’s expertise on economics, but a recent class warfare-laden rant has some raking him over the coals.
At the Mises Institute, a Canadian-based free markets think tank, the actor/ comedian is held up as a textbook example of Hollywood ignorance. As Rock claims to understand the impoverished masses and their supposed yearning for caviar and celebrity bartenders, the group’s James E Miller maintains he has it backwards: Read all »
A feisty Rush Limbaugh made a rare television appearance today, sparring with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday over race relations, a potential government shutdown and the GOP’s recent election victories.
While Wallace tried to keep the focus on race as the primary factor in the Eric Garner choking death, Limbaugh said the real issue was a tax-hungry city wasting police resources on the petty arrest of a guy accused of selling individual cigarettes. This has already sparked anger from his “progressive” foes: Read all »
Between collecting fat paychecks and getting arrested during an anti-police “die-in”, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten apparently has time to browse the Internet and carelessly fall for one of its most-notorious hoaxes.
In a Facebook rant caught by the Daily Caller and others, Weingarten expressed her outrage with Walmart’s supposed “ham for Hanukkah” sale.
One problem: Walmart has never been known to make this mistake and the images in question have been circulating every year since 2007. Read all »
For $47,000 a year, Cornell University tuition sure seems like a bargain, doesn’t it?
Parents must feel wonderful knowing their sons and daughters are attending lectures like those of Russell Rickford, “assistant professor specializing in black radical tradition and black political culture after WWII”. In the wake of recent events in Ferguson and New York City, Rickford is openly calling for white “race suicides” as the ultimate way of sticking it to The Man. Read all »
While an unsuspecting public goes about its business, Eeeevil cleverly lurks in hidden places.
Take last night’s live rendition of Peter Pan on NBC: did you know it was actually a tool of The Oppressor? The Man himself? Read all »
